Common Questions We Get at Our Hearing Center in Council Bluffs

What decibels cause hearing loss?

Hearing loss can occur from prolonged exposure to sounds at or above 85 decibels (dB). The risk increases with the volume and duration of exposure. For context:

  • 85 dB: Heavy city traffic, risk with prolonged exposure
  • 95-100 dB: Motorcycles, risk with 50 minutes of exposure
  • 110 dB: Rock concerts, risk with just 2 minutes of exposure
  • 120 dB: Sirens, immediate risk of damage

Brief exposure to extremely high sounds, like those above 120 dB, can cause instant damage. It’s important to use hearing protection in loud environments.

What are hearing evaluations?

 

Hearing or comprehensive audiologic evaluations are critical in diagnosing and understanding hearing loss. Hearing specialists conduct these tests to assess the hearing loss’s type, severity, and location. There are several key types of evaluations: Otoacoustic emissions (OAEs) test the activity of inner ear cells, useful for infants and young children; Immittance audiometry checks eardrum and middle ear function, helping identify issues like infections or otosclerosis; Pure-tone audiometry, the most common test, uses a range of tones to detail the hearing loss’s nature; and Speech audiometry evaluates how well speech is understood in various environments, indicating the impact of hearing loss on communication. Each test contributes to a comprehensive understanding of an individual’s auditory health.
